What's Included?
How successful your listing does depends partially on the quality and quantity of information you provide to potential customers. To help you, we have put together a suite of standard tools and features that come with every listing and will help you sell your products & services:

Up to 26 images per listing Illustrate your listing with photographs, and maps to make it come alive and give potential customers a taste of what they can expect.
Regional and local maps Every listing includes links to regional, local and street level maps of your property/service. Maps are provided by MapBlast. Please note that some maps outside of the United States may not be available or accurate.
Local weather Weather forecasts of your local area. Forecasts are provided by Weather Underground and may not be available for all areas.
Currency converter Helps visitors from around the world convert from their currency to yours.
Automatic submission to major search engines Our system will automatically submit your information to the major search engines on a periodic basis.

How Much Does It Cost?
Our listings start at US $149.95/year. We now require all listings to subscribe to our services in order to help cover the cost of marketing your listing to potential customers. Our costs are distributed over many listings so that each incurs only a small cost compared to what they would pay if they advertised on their own.

Your Listing Category
When you enter your listing, you are required to select a 'primary category' that best fits the products and services you offer. Each category actually consists of two parts, the 'General Category' and the 'Specific Type'.

The 'General Category' is used to broadly differentiate travel businesses. For instance Accommodations from Adventure Tours and Articles from Cruises. After you pick one of the 'General Category' selections, the Specific Types will instantly be updated to reflect the appropriate choices.

The 'Specific Type' helps to further define your business and distinguish it from others in the General Category. For instance, a Bed & Breakfast from a Vacation Rental - both in the Accommodation category.



Try to select the category closest to your business because the selection will affect the type of information you can enter on later screens. It is possible to change the category in the future, but that may have an adverse effect on your information.

If your company offers services that fall into more than one category, select the most appropriate one for now and you will have an opportunity to select secondary categories later.
